Sally Forth

Sally Quinn, the permanent hostess of the floating Washington cocktail party, suggests there's a GOP plot to oust Dick Cheney and substitute the sexiest man in Washington, Fred Thompson.

It's actually a good idea. If I were a Republican-not-named-Giuliani-Romney-McCain-etc I'd be all for it if I were thinking of improving the party's fortunes in general terms. Though I'm not a Republican so I don't expect them to agree or listen to my advice. And while excising the fourth branch of government would probably be good for the country, improving the party's fortunes in general terms wouldn't be.
